I know Hugh has been waiting for this!!

PN 95-905 Gator blades- First real cut with them- I hadn't mowed in almost 2 weeks, so the grass was nice and thick (and wet) - It took 1 slow mow, and once moderate speed mow to get it all, but very even cut, very nice finished product!! I am impressed! The blades of grass shooting out the side discharge were definitely finer than before.

My 12 could prolly do it at half, I am sure your 16 can. James, I wish I had your GT18. But I would like a briggs 18. They are easier on my wallet. lol

The manual says WOT. It does not say why but I think small engines cool better at WOT. The cut better also.

If you cut a 3/4 throttle you might have to mow it twice... :hide: :D

Glad to here the blades work well. I might try them next time I need blades.

i was under the assumption (i know), that the deck is ratio'd (is that a word?) for use at WOT? anyhow, deck model and blade #'s would be sweet! i cant find short blades round here much

thats where i bought mine from. About 45 shipped. Got them in a week. I tried one other place that supposedly had them but they were out.

I used to mow WOT but i ad a feeling my governor was screwed up and that was why my motor blew a piston before... SO 3/4 throttle... But i have a spare motor, so maybe i should just say "screw it" and mow WOT
